HEY BUDDHA! BETTER GET THE KETTLE READY; WE’RE COMING FOR YOU
This quote from the very popular and tres culty TV series Monkey Magic has inspired John Hart, Saara March and Sui Jackson to completely transform CCAS Manuka into a surreal Victorianesque lounge with flying forks, bulbous bottles, crazy cats, kitschy wall paper curtains, fake grass off cuts and some pretty out there collaged “decor” from John. Sui says the three have been talking about this group effort since college days and it has finally happened. Clearly strange minds think alike in their own individual styles. Like Monkey Magic the show operates on multiple planes – entertaining and comical while dealing with some of Buddhism’s most important philosophical concerns. Hey Bhudda! better get the kettle ready;we’re coming for you should be compulsory viewing for everyone in Canberra and its recommended by the ghost writer that you watch a bit of Monkey to get into the mood. At CCAS Manuka until 16 August.
